hungry. and as an immigrant coming into this country, i was, you know, i had this image that there would be no hunger and this country because, you know, it is the wealthiest country in the world. and it is, ironic that in the wealthiest country in the world and one of the wealthiest cities in the world, san francisco, that there are people, children, families, seniors, who every day, go to bed hungry. and i think that it is really sad, that that is the reality it, for so many people in san francisco. that is why i think that this hearing is so important. and you know, it is around the time of the holidays that perhaps some of these issues have more resonance for folks. but i think that this is really important, we picked up the examiner today and the front page of the examiner today was housing cost and rents and those top concerns for san franciscans and you know that there is a sense of people are being displaced. but, i think that we are forgetting that even basic things like putting the food on the table is something that many people are not able to do. and so, i think that we have

about mrs. moedz anonymous to the immigrant but to san francisco. i only had an opportunity to meet with phil and i was very optimistic because i know how hard he worked and i i know about some of his ideas for this particular commission he will bring a missing voice. the gaps in this particular commission include the youth gap. he's not as young as i am - i'm kidding with that - he brings a prospective that seen always one of the gaps that is missing and i look at this commission and look at it how incredibly diverse s it is and how you have some really credible people. i came here concerned about the residency waiver and the attendance. i was definitely looking at mario he has incredible kre78d he credentials and below p blew me away with his presentation. it would be easier to appointed someone i know like phil who i actually had a had an to know he worked for me in my office he's hardworking and a great person and would do an incredible job but it's hard for me not to support the continuance of those candidates that are applying particularly with mel have a she wants one more te

patients are actually immigrants who have a lot of competing priorities, family issues, child care issues, maybe not being able to find work or finding work and not being insured and health care sometimes isn't the top priority for them. we need to understand that so that we can help them take care of themselves physically and emotionally to deal with all these other things. they also have to be working through with people living longer and living with more chronic conditions i think we're going to see more patients coming through. >> starting next year, every day 10,000 people will hit the age of 60 until 2020. . >> the needs of the patients that we see at kerr senior center often have to do with the consequences of long standing substance abuse and mental illness, linked to their chronic diseases. heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, stroke, those kinds of chronic illnesses. when you get them in your 30's and 40's and you have them into your aging process, you are not going to have a comfortable old age. you are also seeing in terms of epidemics, an increase in alzheimer's and
